      Art Scholarship

      Major awards of up to £3000 and minor awards of up to £1500 may be awarded per annum. Means-tested bursaries can raise considerably the effective amount of an award.

      Candidates for the Art Scholarship should bring a portfolio to the school so that they can be interviewed with their work. The portfolio may include anything that best represents their own interests and talents – sketch books, paintings and drawings, collages, prints and three-dimensional work (framing is not necessary). In addition to this, girls will be asked to produce a piece of work from a given stimulus on the day. Any project work on other artists may be useful but is by no means essential. Please note that the Art Scholarship can be given for Art or Design Technology (including Textiles). Candidates interested in the latter will be interviewed by the staff concerned. Candidates should bring design and practical work if possible. However photographs could be a substitute for this if it is difficult to transport.

      Award holders will have the opportunity to work with a number of specialist staff to develop and explore a variety of media. Workshops are held regularly and there is a comprehensive programme of visits which enhance the artistic life of the School. The Award holders are expected to be studying either Art or Design Technology as part of their sixth form course. They must be willing to participate fully in activities, attending workshops and events regularly.
